Top Ten Conversation Starters

The Top Ten

1 The Weather

Weather is a pretty good conversation starter, but it's too often that someone says, 'Wonderful weather we're having... ' - Lina1028

I think it's the most common subject to begin with! - shatti

This is a very British thing to do. Thank God for our unpreditable weather - without it, us reserved Brits would never speak! - Britgirl

I find it funny on just how true this statement is I dunno what it is about the Weather but good lord it starts Convo's off pretty well! - Curti2594

2 Transport

"Oh, the state of public transport these days. Shocking! " - Britgirl

3 Music


I love talking about music to anyone who'll listen - even the ones who DON'T! You will stand there and listen to me going on about (traditional) Jazz whether you like it or not! - Britgirl

If someone like the same music then is even cooler! - Curti2594

The moment someone talks about music (especially music that I love) they have my attention. - Lina1028

4 Sport

One of the most awkward things is that I couldn't be less interested, and a number of people I meet couldn't be more obsessed! So I have to hear them drone on for hours about the scores, and I eventually go into a coma. It is one of those really tedious things in life. - PositronWildhawk

5 Films
6 Books

A rather good conversation starter, if I may say so. - PositronWildhawk


In a bookshop once, a woman leaned over my shoulder and told me that Agatha Christie's Dumb Witness was worth a read. So I bought it on her say-so. It's now become one of my favourites. - Britgirl

Parent: So did anything interesting happen at school today?
Me: I saw a kid a lady changing a kid's diaper in the classroom, a kid threw up in the cafeteria, there was a fight, and the teacher yelled at me again.
